A big new patch for stealth puzzle game Gunpoint has just gone live on Steam. As well as adding Steam Workshop support for user-generated content, the new update also upgrades the game engine to a new version implemented by Abstraction Games.



Designer Tom Francis says that the new engine will "fix many technical issues and make the game run faster for everyone, and itíll enable us to develop Mac and Linux versions next."

Here's the full list of major changes in the new patch:

New engine, implemented by Abstraction Games. Should fix many technical issues and make the game run faster for everyone, and itíll enable us to develop Mac and Linux versions next.

Steam Workshop added, for browsing and sharing user-made levels. Yes, we listened to the 1,779 post petition you guys started even after weíd already announced we would do it.

Option to turn off swearing. Up to you whether this makes ďGrow a ####ing #### and shove it up your ###Ē kid-safe.
Reconfigurable keyboard controls.

Vertical sync option. I didnít know we needed this, but the folks at Abstraction added it and now the animation is at least 23% more beautiful.

Level editor. The level editor has been in there since launch, but some people still ask for one so Iím just going to keep announcing Iíve added it until everyone knows itís there.

You can now place multiple elevators in a level without it crashing. Thatís more than I could do when I was making the game, so I expect your levels to be at least twice as good as mine.

If you have any technical troubles with the new version, you can still use the old one by going to Properties > Betas and selecting Ďoldversioní. Post your issue on the forums too, so we can fix it.


It's a good time to pick up Gunpoint if you're interested, with the game currently 75% off on Steam for 48 hours, ending 10am Pacific Time on June 19.
